You might have noticed that Silent Hunter for iPhone comes out these days.

SH won't be your only possible choice on the iPhone for a submarine simulation in the future.
After one year of work it's time to present a first preview of "WOTA - Wolves of the Atlantic"

"WOTA - Wolves of the Atlantic" for iPhone and iPod touch.
© 2009-2010 by Mark Hessburg. (Currently in development)

A full scale U-Boat simulation, career orientated game play (1939-1945), the Game World contains the whole Atlantic, North Sea and Mediterranean Sea. You won't be limited to fight your Battles just in tiny static Missions. Dynamic Campaign and Wolfpacks! All important german WWII U-Boats Classes can be used in the game - including interiors!

The game is currently in development. It will be a sim, not arcade.

Watch a first preview VIDEO here http://www.wolves-of-the-atlantic.com
(Shows how the game looks using the external camera, some interiors are also shown but without textures)

Looks better now  :)
But you still have to wait. It just needs time. (visit the WOTA facebook page to get news)

Improved graphics and completely new water:

Putting a short trailer of an iOS game in Flash makes trying to watch it on those devices hard. Uh, no, impossible in fact. Finally managed to see it after enabling Flash in Safari, nice. But please put an iOS friendly version on your website when you get a moment, thanks.

It's on YouTube; there's no problem watching YouTube videos on iDevices since they are both Flash and H264.

Exactly, and the website has extra redirect pages for use on iPhone and iPad (just the slideshow has some problems on the iPhone).

Ah, Eric5h5... now I remember that I have forgot to mention that WOTA is made with the awesome unity engine which has a free version available http://www.unity3d.com  :D

Announcing "WOTA: Seehund Type XXVIIb"
(A kind of special preview version of WOTA)



(Video shows the current water running on the iPhone 3GS)


"WOTA: Seehund Type XXVIIb" will be the first release of the "WOTA: Wolves of the Atlantic" series.

It's about midget submarines only, so you can think about it as a kind of reduced version of the final WOTA subsim - to increase development speed it will offer less types of enemy ships and because it's about midgets it will use a portion of the map limited to the historical area of operations and range of the Seehund.

You want to help me to finish the project(s)?: Just spread the word!

Now to answer the most important question: WHEN?

The plan is to submit it to Apple in late december 2012 / early january 2013. Which means you possibly won't see that many types of ships in the initial release of the midget subsim.

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

Thanks, it will still take some months (about two months) - I am currently moving to another location and this takes some time.
